I guarantee this will be the craziest thing you will see all day. What you see here is Thor 24, a big rig truck with impossible levels of customization/modifications. It looks like Optimus Prime on acid. Shit lot of acid.
Before we go on, Thor 24 has no relation to electric truck startup Xos which is formerly known as Thor Trucks. Thor24 is hands down the craziest semi we have ever seen and I confident it will remain the craziest ever.
Now if the images did not immediately blew your mind, I am sure the features/specs will. It is powered by two 12-cylinder Detroit Diesel 12V71 2-stroke engines (24 cylinders!) bolted with 12 (!!??) superchargers which result in a combined displacement of 27.9L and puts a mind-bending 3,974 horsepower.
At this point, any sane person’s jaw would have drop to the ground.
The custom engine also result in an unusually long hood in any big rig. But it is not just the hood was stretched. The cab, an original one-of-a-kind 1979 Peterbilt 359 crew cab, too was stretched.
Other details include 1933 custom-built Ford Grill Tribute, completely chrome-plated and polished aluminum and stainless undercarriage, Hawker jet-engine Auxiliary Power Unit (APU), 110V world-class sound system that packs 1,500W per channel, and 7 movie screens.
All told, this 44-foot long, 32,000 lbs beast of the semi universe has a top speed of 130 miles an hour (209 km/h) and has 4 drag-chutes out at the back to rein it in when needed.
Clearly, this truck ain’t made for hauling goods. It is was made to make jaws drop. Thor 24 Custom Big Rig Truck was the brainchild of Mike Harrah and it took 7 years and $7 million to realize.
It may have a cost, but you can’t buy it. However, Thor 24 is available for film and TV, if you ever need a sick-looking truck for your feature film.
